For a good meal, the right ingredients are indispensable. For a good light show, the equipment is. And for more than 25 years now, Moving Head spots are part of this equipment. They’re not only a part of it, but have become essential and integral for lighting technology. No concert, no TV show would do without the use of these multifunctional spots. But who invented them?

It wasn’t the Swiss this time. The spots took their first steps in the USA. In 1970, Showco was founded and emerged as one of the leading providers of PA and lighting installations at live events. After a few years, Showco could boast some really illustrious customers like Led Zeppelin, The Who, David Bowie and Genesis. But the Americans had competitors from England, who used aluminum instead of steel for their PAR cans and experimented with new dimmer technologies, breaking new ground with devices working more efficiently. The financial losses grew so big, that Showco really thought about giving up and retiring from the lighting business. But it shouldn’t come to that.

Amping for actively separated sound-systems

June 4th, 2013 Posted in PSSO, worth knowing

PSSO Line Array CLAWhen it comes to selecting amplifiers for an actively separated sound-system, there are two different philosophies we would like to present here. Both versions have their own advantages and disadvantages so that it is necessary to take a closer look at the requirements for every use and how to find a good economic and technically sound solution.

We call these two philosophies „Stereo-Setup“ and „Mono-Setup“, because in the stereo-setup, the individual signal paths (hi, mid, bass) of the left and right loudspeaker are amplified by one amplifier each. For the mono-setup, each loudspeaker side has its own amplifier, sometimes even its own system controller. The mono-setup is especially suitable for sound-systems not always being operated in the same configuration, e. g. Line-Arrays with more or less loudspeakers depending on the depth and general size of the audience area. Furthermore, mono-setups can also be operated individually as smaller systems in stereo-setup. The stereo-setup is suitable for permanent installations and for systems with always almost the same configuration. Read more »
